The FA Cup sticker wallchart…

I don’t reckon ANYONE bought this except for us…

The FA Cup wallchart magazine came out for a couple of years in the mid-eighties. It contained a huge fold-out FA Cup wallchart at A1 size which mapped out the progress of clubs from the third round onwards.

But best of all were the sheets upon sheets of all the club badges of those teams left in the competition.
They were very useful and I used them for all sorts of projects, including scrapbooks and programme filing.

The non-league teams, like Slough, Telford, Bishops Stortford and Boston only got three stickers, on the assumption that they wouldn’t make it beyond the fifth round. Sadly this was never tested.

Of course, if we are wrong and you had these, than let us know.

We are now working hard on ‘Got, Not Got 2′ but you can still get last year’s model. (Cunning punk rock reference). Available from branches of WH Smith and Waterstones or online here

  1. Wow, had that and had forgotten about it! There were of course blank stickers to write clubs names on should they progress further than the manufacturers expected. I did these for a couple of years and clearly remember having to use the blanks.
    As an adult I would quite happily pin a new wallchart to the wall and do it all over again. Let’s hope some publishing company spots your post and has similar ideas!

    Made by StatMill of London W5. Probably long gone.
    I may have to make my own!

    I bought one off my PE teacher. Every football fan at my school got one.

    Those rows of badges have triggered something in the memory bank. If I had one I think it was sold through school.
